The Worst Person in the World

The Worst Person in the World ★★★★★

‘Your voice has stayed in my head.
We still have great conversations.’

Incredibly more focused than its spiritual prequel Reprise, Joachim Trier has created an incredibly captivating protagonist in Julie (played to perfection by Renate Reinsve, keep an eye on her), and a series of vignette stories that captivated me in different ways. Hard to really pick a favourite the quality is so consistent.
What many, and lofty, themes this film explores in it’s tight runtime has been done with less care and devotion in other films that have centred purely on one of these themes- the juggling of them all here is masterclass.
The direction shows someone who has matured with his storytelling abilities and it deserves all the accolades it has and will continue to receive.

Who is the worst person in the world? 
You- if you don’t watch this (bad joke, but serious, it’s an absolute classic of a film).
